There’s a company that will make a poster of whatever town you want

If you moved out of state but were born in, say, Harmony or Rumford, and want to memorialize it with a cool poster, you’re probably out of luck. (You should just move back to Maine, anyway, you coward.)

Meanwhile you can buy hundreds — probably thousands — of different kinds of map posters of major cities.

What if you want to rep East Millinocket? Sorry.

But it turns out there’s a company out there that will make a poster of whatever town you want. It costs $60, which seems like a lot. But they actually look pretty cool.

I had trouble getting some townships to show up, but you could probably find your particular area if you dug a little.

The Swedish company, Mapiful, uses OpenStreetMap data to build the posters. Shipping is free.
